what we do

1.
Plan

If you want us to, we will will get involved in the creation of your idea. We will give you our thoughts from a filming perspective and how we would see the project coming to fruition. We will work with you by giving your project some creative input to help shape the finished film. For us, it's important that the finished production is as good as we can produce it. We therefore have an invested interest in your project and you can be sure of our complete focus and attention.

2.
Film

We're a pretty patient team, and we have had some testing projects in the past. Whilst filming in the field we lock in. If the project is scripted then this makes our job easier, however often there are always obstacles and unseen challenges, such as light, location, noise, mistakes, timings etc. You can be assured of a professional approach and we will do all we can to help and make suggestions and direct the shoot. We are so much more than just staying behind the camera looking at you.

3.
Produce

'All good films are made in the cutting room'...

This is more and more true in the filming industry today. For us, this is where the film comes alive; this is where it takes shape; and this is where it can either make or break your film. We do not rush post production because the film has to look right. If we aren't feeling it then we will re-do it. That being said, we work to meet our deadlines.

Q?

Do you produce on screen graphics?

A.

Yes, we can provide various on screen graphics and techniques. We would need to discuss what your actual requirements would be to begin with, however we don't produce our own animation or motion graphics.

Q?

What finished format do you supply to us?

A.

We will supply the finished film in various formats for you depending on your requirements. Whether it be for internet, website and streaming use, Ipad and tablets, mobile phones, all in HD quality. Even DVD and blu-ray DVD.

Q?

When do we get the finished product?

A.

Depending on the filming and editing time, and your requirements,  completion time can be anything around 1-4 weeks for one film. We appreciate that you may need a 1st edit fairly quickly and they might require re-edits too. The bottom line is, if we have agreed on a deadline then we stick to it.

 

Q?

What about licences for music or stock footage?

A.

All the music we supply is royalty free and this will be included in the quote we give. Should you require a particular piece of music that has an additional licence cost then this will be added to the overall cost. Likewise, if there is any stock footage that may be required, such as still images or even moving footage, then this will also be budgeted into the overall cost.

You are free to provide you own music or any stock footage you require.

 

Q?

How is payment made?

A.

We would require 50% upon the initial agreement to commence work, then the remainder of the final payment is paid upon satisfactory completion of the final edit.

Q?

What’s included in your quote?

A.

The quote we supply is the whole job from start to finish, including filming and post production.

Q?

Do you film in 4K?

A.

No. We film in 1080 HD. This is the format that the vast majority can view on their computer monitors.

Quite simply, 4K is not here yet. Yes, we know we have the facility to film in 4k and now consumer TVs can be supplied 4K ready. However, there is only any real benefit of viewing 4K if your viewing is over 50", up until this point the difference is unnoticeable. Therefore this is a good benefit for cinemas.

When HD arrived, film festivals were displaying everywhere the massive difference between SD and HD quality. When 4K was introduced this comparison was nowhere to be seen.

4k can be streamed on the internet, but again the difference is hardly worth it unless your viewing screen is huge. Video platforms such as Youtube are just beginning to trial 4K, Vimeo has plans for the future but not here yet.

The bottom line is, 4K will be of worth once everyone can view it and on large enough screens.

Q?

What insurance do you have?

A.

We have full professional indemnity insurance.
